Queer Emergence 

Wednesday, Nov 20 2013

To remain on the cutting edge, artists need a safe place to experiment – somewhere to try new work and show unpolished pieces in a supportive environment. To truly fly high, sometimes we have to remove the fear of falling, and that's what makes events like The News: Fresh, Queer Performance so important. The News is a monthly salon for the best voices emerging from the city's queer performance art scene. It was created by the ubiquitous collaborator Kolmel WithLove, who has screened films in the Frameline Film Festival and performed all across town, from leather bars and living rooms to CounterPULSE and The Garage. This month's edition of The News is curated by dancer and performance artist Jesse Hewit. It features new work from "anti-dance" maker and writer Abby Crain, the musical drag duo Bellows, and the "body-positive, age-positive, sex-positive" dance troupe SexiTude, among others.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
